Happy Birthday, Grant!
Ponderosa is gone? Suck. There goes another great piece of my childhood. We used to go to the one on 127th & Ridgeland all the time. I guess Gary isn't too bad of a drive. Hell, we used to drive further toy hunting.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, guys. Happy belated b-day to Gabe too!
thanks for the belated b-day wishes grant! and flock all of you "friends" that forgot!
i'll take a ride to gary for some ponderosa but i'm bringing my bullet proof vest and my rp47 just in case w/ get in a little scuffle!
there is still a few long john silver's around here, actually not but 10 mins away from my house just like checkers!
Wait, did the Pondorosa near Fox Valley mall that we had a meeting at a while ago close down? They looked like they were still open when I drove past it a couple of week ago. Though, I'm only basing that on the sign, etc, still being there. I really didn't pay attention to see how many cars were in the lot or if the lights were on.
I'm honestly not surprised that Ponderosa closed. I have to admit - I always thought it was a pretty mediocre place. When I was a kid we went to the Ponderosa in Streator, but it seems like the chain changed a lot over the years.
I'm not sure about Sunday. I might be able, but I may have a conflict that day - will hopefully know in a day or two.
I found this in my basement, timely and awesome.
PS It glows in the dark
It has rendered you speechless.

Well, the house is finally getting into shape. A few small things need to get fixed here and there, but the place is shaping up nice!
We went out and found some living room furniture we both liked and bought it. The only downside is that it was out of stock and won't be back in the warehouse till the end of the month! So watching my new tv sucks because hard wood floors do not agree with my ass or back!
HUGE thanks to Jimmy for helping me with the boxes! We needed every single one!
I think I actually might be good to go for the next meeting.
OK, time to go back and catch up on this thread.
Happy belated birthday Gabe. Hope you enjoyed it. ID be up for seeing you all on Sunday but I'll be stuck working
Thank you Mario, but our Princess is in another castle.
this weekend is a bust for me, so i guess i'll just meet up w/ brandon to square up for the gygor when he gets them in, unless he waits for the meet up 2 marc's if that what everyone is planning to do?!?!?
I'm out for the meeting on Sunday, but I will definately be there for the meeting at Marc's place.
Honestly with the turn-around time for Matty getting these orders shipped out, I probably won't have the Gygors until shortly before the meeting at Marc's at the soonest (I HOPE they don't arrive after the meeting), so it just makes the most sense to get them to everybody at that meeting. They go on sale on the 15th, and Marc's meeting is on the 24th, so I hope I have them in time.
Here is the updated lit of Gygors that I am ordering:
Me - 1
Grant - 1
Gabe - 1
Brandon M. - 1
(I'm also ordering 1 Ghostbusters Egon for myself).
Marc is off that day and placing his own order, and I am just getting 1 for myself instead of 2. I've basically decided that I'm not going to maintain a MOC/MIB collection of every figure, etc, in MOTUC. I know I've been back and forth on this, but in the long run I won't have the space for them all, and with them adding all of these extra items (with talks of vehicles coming), it's just costing way too much to keep up with it all.
I will be keeping a hanful of "favorites" MOC, but I'll be selling off most of them.
I'm going to try to compile a list of the ones that I am selling intially hopefully by sometime this weekend, and I'll post it here first, giving you guys first crack at them before I post them in the marketplace.
Off-hand I do have an extra SDCC Orko/Adam set that I was keeping MOC (I already have another that I opened) that I traded a regular Orko/Adam set that I ordered from Matty Collector to obtain, so if anyone wants that, I'm just asking for $28 for it (the price I paid for the Matty Orko/Adam set that I traded for it).
For pretty much all other regular figures that I post, I will be asking $25 for them unless noted otherwise.
The ones that I am definately keeping MOC (meaning I am not selling them) is He-Man and Skeletor -both first releases and reissues, Hordak - both first release and reissue (though I may have an extra first release that I may sell as I bought a couple of extras with the intent to customize them), Adora, She-Ra, Man-At-Arms, and my King Grayskull that is still in attached to the inside of the electronic box. (other's that I'm kicking around keeping are Wun-Dar, Mossman, Goddess, Teela, Stratos, and Keldor.. I'm also keeping my extra MOC Matty Orko/Adam set because I plan to customize that Orko into a Montork). I may keep just 1 He-Ro MOC (I was keeping all 3 stone colors MOC even though you can't really see them, and I still have one or two extra from when I placed the bulk order, so I only plan to keep 1 if I keep any of them MOC). I will double check the rest of my figures to be sure that there is nothing else that I want to keep, but most likely I'll be selling off all of the rest of my regular figures.
So, I will post a specific list of what I am selling later, but if anyone knows of any figures that aren't on my above 'keep list' that you specifically want, go ahead and post it or send me a PM. More than likely it's something that I'm willing to sell off and I can bring anything that anyone wants to the meeting at Marc's place.
Little-B already has dibs on my MIB Tytus.
I have 2 subscriptions for the rest of this year, and I only plan to keep 1 of each of the 'monthly' figures for the rest of this year (Carnivus, Roboto, Grizzlor, and Buzz-Off). So if anyone without a sub wants to call 'dibs' on any of those figures (because I'm sure many of you are just clammoring for an extra Carnivus! ), just let me know (the price for those will be $20 + half of the total tax & shipping for the shipment of my 2 sub figures, which will probably work out to around $25 or $26).

Hey DoE, if no one has spoken for the SDCC Orko, I'll take it! Thanks.
It's yours, Moondrake.
I just quickly looked through the list of all figures released on Matty Collector (to remember what all came out), and these are ones that I am definately selling off:
Battle Armor He-Man
I may add more to the list later, but these are ones that I want to sell. (Optikk will likely end up on the list as well, but I seem to have misplaced some of the parts from my loose Optikk... I'm sure I still have them somewhere and when/if I find them he'll be up for sale, but I want to hang onto my MOC one incase the parts don't turn up and I need to open that one for spare parts).

The meeting will be either on the 24th or 25th. Depends on you guys. Whatever works for you guys.
Did any of you guys pick up the new Spider-Man video game this week?
There's a new Spider-Man game out? I did manage to pick up The Red Hood DVD earlier today, so let's see if this is the one DC Animated Movie that does not put me to sleep during the first viewing.
24th and 25th work just fine for me.
Be careful what you wish for - it might come true, for the face of death wears the mask of the King of Mercy.

yeah shattered dimensions is freaking awesome! i preordered mine when i was @ sdcc so i could get the t shirt they were giving away, i'n just wondering what happened to the free promo figure i was supposed to get?!?!?
I just picked up Web of Shadows for the Wii about a month ago at Target in the checkout lanes for $14.99. I just don't play enough video games any more to justify paying full price. Plus I had heard that game really sucked for the Wii and the reviews said wait for it to go on clearance. I having a blast with it.
I love it when a plan comes together.
Brave & the Bold is a decent little side scrolling/platforming/beat-em-up, but not worth $40. Good for the kids or fans of the show. ALL the voice talent from the show is there. Only thing that really sucks is that Aquaman & Plastic Man are not playable. (They're only support help-Playable characters are Batman, Robin, Blue Beetle, Hawkman & Guy Gardner) I love the fact that the game is set up exactly like the show. Episode starts with a short teaser level against a villain, and following that goes into the show's opening credits, complete with episode title and then a whole new villain/plot to play through. And there's TONS of dialog during the game. Some are semi-static cutscenes, but a lot of it is voiceover conversation while you're playing the level.
Hey Jimmy, if you've got the weekend off, would you want to get pasta on Saturday? I can't make Sunday, but Saturday is wide open right now.
